I have been in the health and fitness world most of my life. I experience the world through movement and have a particular strength for spotting mechanical problems in the body. Over years of being an athlete and working with people’s compensations and dysfunctions, there is no ignoring the body’s compensation patterns. If they are ignored, over time, injury and degeneration will occur. It is hard to see this when we are younger because you may have not had as much time repeating harmful patterns. On the flip side, age is not the cause either, patterns are.
There are no two ways about it….You’re compensations affect how you paddle and move through your life. Stand up paddling (SUP), is the main focus of my athletic coaching and accomplishments. I will increase your efficiency in paddling as well as help you create a “Fuller life”. From my work as an Egoscue alignment therapist for the past 20 years and over 30 years in body work and health/fitness I have a great eye for helping you curb compensating mechanical patterns that show up in your paddling whether you are just learning or are more experienced. All of us have something we can improve on so it is a fun and empowering process to learn new skills.
I have worked with 100’s of people who have changed degeneration and compensation patterns and in turn increased their abilities in movement as well as quality of life. Combining the education of how to change compensations, injury and pain in your body will increase your ability to do everyday movements you are designed to do. We tend to just “deal” with pain by pushing through it. The key is to stop and ask why you are experiencing pain or you are not able to do certain movements easily and effortlessly.
I help people integrate healthy patterns that will in turn help you with any sport or activity you are involved with in your life.
Stand up paddle boarding is my main sport I coach people in. It is a very dynamic series of motions that can easily be distorted through a person’s compensations. Change your compensations and increase your ability to paddle and live life more efficiently and Fuller!
